Design Remote Learning 2.0 with Families in Mind

Byte-Size GuidanceSynchronous (live) learning, Families with multiple learners at home

Schools and Districts: Coordinate regular, live, face-to-face instructional sessions by grade or grade bands.
Example: 3rd graders learn “live” on Tuesdays/Thursdays, 10-10:30 am; 5th graders learn “live” on Mondays/Wednesdays, 11-11:45 am.

This enables families to support multiple learners at home and minimize time conflicts and competing technology use. Consistent meeting times help families to plan ahead.

Survey says: More than half of families must supervise and coordinate resources (technology, assistance, space) for more than one learner in their homes. Learn more.

Experts advise inserting synchronous learning into the remote learning mix to help learners stay connected to their teachers and classmates. Plus it can increase learner interactions and engagement. Learn more.

Design considerations for teachers: Maximize synchronous learning time. Engage learners in dialogue to deepen understanding of content. Encourage learners to share at-home learning experiences. Extend learning with asynchronous learning experiences. Learn more.
